I had another car accident on Tuesday night, my 4th in the last 4 months if you include when Carlos’ neighbor backed into my parked car. Sometimes, when everything is going right, I feel like I’m amazing for being able to live in Mexico by myself. But then, something like a car accident happens, and I’m reminded of how fragile I am, that I need God and the people around me a lot more than I thought I did.
I clearly remember asking God for more humility a few weeks ago. I guess if his answer to that prayer is putting me in a neck brace (see the last picture) and making me totally dependent on others for my transportation for the foreseeable future, I really can’t complain. Whatever it takes to get through to me!
Despite the challenges, Mexico continues to be fun, beautiful, and a dream come true. Here are some pictures of what I’ve been up to lately:
Seeing the sunrise over the Rio Grande when I was on the bus coming back to Saltillo a few weeks ago
Watching Mexico/Croatia with Pau
Giving classes at a company at the very top of Saltillo, practically in the mountains!
Celebrating my friend/coworker Fernando’s birthday
Salsa dancing with Carlos
Drinking crema de coco
Eating chile rellenos en San Antonio de las Alazanas (a little town in the mountains) with Carlos
Celebrating Amalia’s 96th birthday with a dance and, a few days later, bingo
My car after Tuesday. Between my sister and I’s wrecks combined, it’s a wonder this thing is still running.

Thanks, as always, for reading and sharing in my life!
